The scriptures says, “as a man thinks in his heart so is he”
Nothing just happens before first being just a simple thought. What do I mean?
You can never become anything that you have never thought of becoming. For example, you are a winner first in your thoughts, before you can become a winner to the world. You’re a failure first in your thoughts, before you manifested yourself as a failure to the world.
The beauty of this is that, no thought takes dominance of your mind without your approval. This means that for any thoughts whether good or bad to gain tenancy in your mind, you must first sign the go ahead approval of the same, consciously or otherwise. When these thoughts seek your approval for tenancy, you have the power to allow or reject! This happens to be the life defining moment in one’s life. To be or not to be. To be a winner or to be a failure. To be happy or to be moody. To be aggressive or to be passive. To be determined or to be lazy and so on. In other words, you are the C.E.O!!
Above all, there is one thought that I find myself choosing to give tenancy in my mind every single time I receive a request in my mind. That is; Happy Thoughts, just to choose to be HAPPY. I have discovered that this very thought affects my whole being without discrimination. It is like a direct injection to the other sub-thoughts.
In a world that is full of negativity, choosing to be HAPPY becomes a daily choice every hour. For you to succeed in remaining happy, you may need to preorder your happy thoughts. Trust me, it is required. At times, you may need to force your mind to accept your happy thoughts because most of the time, circumstances and conditions demands that your lose your sanity. The stress of the times we are living in, demands that you have to encourage yourself every minute to remain happy and full of joy.
But it amazes me that the Lord knew that this would require His intervention and so He already made a provision for it in His Word.” The joy of the Lord is my strength”. The source of my joy and happiness is from a constant God, who never changes, who does not suffer lack or want! With that said, I am assured that my joy and happiness is ever full in Him.
I have made this very practical in my life; to always speak these words into my mind until my mind knows nothing else but, “THE JOY OF THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH”. I speak them anywhere and loudly, at home, place of work, while on the road, I mean anywhere and everywhere until my mind conforms and I remain a HAPPY AND JOYFULL WOMAN!
